their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
romney is carrying on the campaign trail in florida today. mr. romney faces the challenge of pivoting a campaign based almost entirely on criticizing the president as a failure and facing dreaded questions on his statement that he'd cut fema and return it to the states. the campaign has a clear media strategy on that front, and many others, of course. it's three weeks since mr. romney took a question from any reporter. let's get rate to our panel, as we await the president. richard wolffe is with me, the vp and executive editor of msnbc.com. and in washington, msnbc analyst eugene robinson, a pulitzer prize-winning columnist for "the washington post." richard, if i can start with you. with all due respect to romney and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond pa
, the smallest swing state that may be edge in mr. romney's direction. in these frenetic final days both candidates are sharpening their closing arguments to voters, mr. obama arguing for another four year. >> after four years as president you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> reporter: mr. romney calling himself the agent of change. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change and when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america! >> reporter: and as the hurricane sandy recovery effort continues, both candidates took time to mention the storm victims thursday. >> no democrats or republicans during a storm. they are just fellow americans. >> if you have a few extra dollars, send them along to the american red cross or to the salvation army or to other relief organizations, it can make a difference in the lives of our fellow citizens. >> reporter: mr. romney was then interrupted by a protester. >> what about clima
said that's the flag on the flag pole here next to mr. romney. ained reached over and grabbed the flag and pulled it out and the was as if electricity was running through my arm because i thought about the people who lost their lives and they walked in danger's way for learning, for something bigger than themselves, for us. i think of our men and women in uniform and their willing tons walk in harm's way for us, for freedom. [applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me
. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it has been that way for a long, long time. the romney campaign is not seeking out guaranteed voters, but going after persuadable voters and trying to create new gop votes for romney. that contrast to
are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks that the people that i come from are stupid. but i've been traveling all over the state. i was in three different towns today and i've been at a lot of packed halls with auto workers and people who supply the auto industry. you're talking about 800,000 jobs in auto-related jobs in ohio, which means you're talking about more th
against you mr. romney. are you a turnaround expert and you are saying that these turnarounds were garbage so that is their offense. they've been saying it. >> cenk: i know. if one side has the weapon of just truth and the other of truth saying the economy is sluggish et cetera and a whole arsenal of lies, uneven playing field. my point michael is if i were the democrats, i would charge at the media so much harder and say you're not doing your job! you're being completely and utterly unfair to us, to progressives, to liberalal you're n nligent.. you' u' incompetent! you should show the facts on a daily basis. if you don't do that, you're biased. they're lying at it whereas we would be telling the truth. >> you're right. there's nothing you've said that wasn't true but you also have to say, what i said already which is the democrats do play their version of offense. it is just very different and right now, you're looking at a desperate campaign. they're coming back withing this radio ad about welfare. the president ob
." cleveland plain dealer's er89 says "flailing in ohio romney rolls out jeep ploy." say wau want about mr. romney's overall relationship with the truth throughout this campaign. say he's prone to gaffes or misstatements, call them fibs, call them lies. now that he is finishing his campaign in ohio with a lie about ohio that ohio knows is a lie, you can just call this one a mistake. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great night. >>> the good news for mitt romney tonight is the massive storm has made everyone forget about his secret tax returns. the bad news for mitt romney is the massive storm has made everyone forget about mitt romney. >> on the ground in the middle of the devastation, president obama will tour new jersey. >> the october surprise, bipartisanship. >> governor chris christie -- >> i cannot thank the president enough. >> -- and president obama -- >> we will not quit until this is done. >> together surveying the damage. >> a big storm requires some big government. >> the federal government -- >> it seems like common sense. >> -- will not quit u
you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time, he left the state with debt. you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state, which are totally untrue. i have to say, i have lived in new hampshire and a town over from where his vacation home is. the campaign itself, where he is changing positions it, from the time he was governor of massachusetts from what he is saying today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he was pro-life when he was the governor in massachusetts and now he is -- or he was not pro- life back then, and now he's pro-life. guest: certainly, candidates, as they go through time, can. change can i think someone might say the president, you could hold out certain examples of the president's record. changes positions. certainly between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins, you might see some curbing of some of these positions that were taken during the campaign. it's just a guess. but some of these things will change over time it. candidates will take a step back sometimes from their harder position th
and inside was our flag in perfect condition. sits next on the flagpole next to mr. romney, and electricity ran through my arms because i thought about men and women of our space program who have lived their lives for something bigger than americ themselves. think of women who have served in the arm for first, their willingness to walk in the way of danger for us, for liberty. it is part of the american character to give of oneself to something bigger than oneself. it is who we are. is true in the patriots of the space program, the patrons who serve in our military, who served in the homes. my sister is in her 70's. she has eight children. they are all married with kids of their own, except the untest. the youngest, jeffrey, was born with down's syndrome. he is about 43 right now. her husband pass away a few years ago. she is at home with jeffrey, and she has devoted the last 43 years of her life to making sure that jeffrey's life is as full and complete as can possibly be. and he wrote to me. -- a hero to me. i think of the single moms across the country who are scrimping and saving right
was calling in to say that mr. romney wants for nothing and he is just running for president for power. if he is elected, we will go back to being barefoot and pregnant and the states or as they're going right now are going to start becoming small countries if power is given to them. and people in the south will see the rise again of us moving into the civil war type situation. host: before we talk to you we were talking about gender issues. do social issues whatever factor into voting there in wisconsin? guest: sure, like anywhere else they go into i think the way people line up in both parties and that's -- i don't know if it's any more true or less true in wisconsin than any other state host: california. our independent line. craig, you're on. caller: is this for me now? host: you're on, sir. go ahead. caller: i wasn't sure because you didn't list it properly. host: we're running out of time. go ahead. caller: i just want to mention because i think there's a problem with semantics in this country. and what i mean by that is everybody looks at romney from the standpoint as this man as a bui

. it's great to be with you. >> steve: great to have you. so after a couple of days that mr. romney has for the most part taken off due to the circumstances of the big storm here in the northeast, it's game on again today. he's going to be traveling with you and also former governor bush and marco rubio and what is his message to florida? >> i think his message is the same one he's been talking about for a long time. that's jobs and the economy and how to get this country moving again. there are a lot of people down here in florida who are hurting. their homes are upside down and their loans, they can't find work. there is 820,000 floridans out of work, more who have stopped looking for work. so it's about how to get job creators back into the game of creating jobs. you do that by lower taxes, lower regulations, and putting our faith and trust back into the people of the state of florida and this country instead of more and more government. that's exactly what mitt romney has been talking about. if i could real quick, i want to let everyone know that here in florida, our hearts and pray

to do. he was criticizion -- criticizing where he said he would be bipartisan and said that's what mr. obama did not do on obama care and a hoses of other issues. mitt romney offering an olive branch to the swing voters. >> he promised that it would be a post partisan presidency. we watched him over the last four years and he has been decisive and demonized any group that opposed him. he promised to cut the deficit in half. i know he says he wants to do something that helps with the budget, but to balance the budget it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budgets. >> from florida to new evening land, the nation watches as hurricane sandy prepares to bear down and slam into the atlantic coast. in florida they are not expecting to be too badly hit. he was asked to postpone all events.

like he's mr. coal. come on. come on. you know that's not on the level. does anybody ever actually look at that guy and think he's really into coal? >> cenk: ha, ha, ha, romney is not into coal enough. if you elect an democrat we'll really be into coal. even into coal even more. climate change, mtv who gives a damn about that. and did it help? did your strategy a piece oil and coal, did it help? no, super pacs run by the coal and oil industries are running this ad against president obama any way. >> we can build on that rock for generations to come. but our current leadership in washington has taken us down a different path. a path paved by heavy-handed epa regulation. a path relying on facts not fuel. a path leading away from energy independence. a path that fails to recognize low-cost energy and desirable high-paying jobs. >> cenk: yeah, nonsense. the reality is president obama has been terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you
from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan? >> well you know. it's a tough situation, i will tell you that, with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it a long, long time. my former coaches and family members who are in that group, i'm
and romney campaigns. >> she's a national political reporter and is here to talk to us about the ground game in campaign 2012. welcome to the program. >> what exactly is a ground game? >> mrs. the political component known as field organization, so all of the things that the campaigns do to connect with voters, individually, on the ground, through field offices, through phone calls, and knocking on doors, and trying to drive people out to the polls, so beyond, you know, what the candidates do, when they're giving speeches on the stump, and beyond the ads that you see on tv and beyond the crafting of the message that the speechwriters and the ad writers do, this is the part of the campaign that comes down to connecting with voters, and making sure they vote. >> how important is the ground game this year compared with previous elections? >> i think it tends to be a pretty consistent part of any political campaign. it's something that democrats tend to emphasize a little bit more than republicans, although one of the most impressive field organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was
